 Stellar Ravel Collection February 16, 2016 By Christopher  Abbot (Chilmark, MA) See All My Reviews "In the mid-1970s DG issued a box set comprising four LPs of Ravel orchestral music featuring Seiji Ozawa conducting the Boston Symphony. Those recordings have been available for a decade on three CDs issued on DG's Eloquence label. This new SACD offers a generous selection from that set. Ravel's music was always one of Ozawa's strengths, and this new collection contains two of his most successful performances in Mother Goose and Le Tombeau de Couperin. Though the remaining pieces are less substantial facets of the Ravel canon, they maintain the high quality of the two ballets, and in the Valses Nobles et Sentimentale suggest what Ozawa does with La Valse. The sound production for the original LPs was very fine, but this new remastering to surround sound offers audible improvement, not only in imaging and atmosphere, but especially in the reproduction of lower tones: the definition of bassoons, cellos and double basses puts even the Eloquence CDs to shame. If you desire a Ravel collection that offers more than the mixed blessing of yet another Bolero, look no further." Report Abuse
